Louisville dupes Duke into covering wrong basket, scores on easy layup

Duke won the game, but it was Louisville that produced the most highlight-worthy moment of Monday night’s clash between two ranked squads.

What a play design from Cardinals head coach Jeff Walz. Out of a timeout, Louisville players lined up on the opposite end of the floor – at Duke’s basket – instead of their own.
